Our backyard is the Bob Marshall Wilderness; if you are unfamiliar with what that is please keep reading.
- The United States Congress designated the Bob Marshall Wilderness in 1964 and it now has a total of 1,009,352 acres. The entire wilderness is in Montana. It is managed by the Spotted Bear and Rocky Mountain Ranger Districts.The Bob Marshall Wilderness was named after early forester, wilderness preservation pioneer, and Wilderness Society cofounder Bob Marshall. This region was set aside as the South Fork, Pentagon, and Sun River Primitive Areas in 1941, and designated as wilderness in 1964. Here is one of the most completely preserved mountain ecosystems in the world, the kind of wilderness most people can only imagine: rugged peaks, alpine lakes, cascading waterfalls, grassy meadows embellished with shimmering streams, a towering coniferous forest, and big river valleys. Full of big game, and fish and waterfoul.
- Across the lake, you will find access to the Mission Mountain Range. Which is also fully loaded with hunting opportunities and endless snowmobiling.
- Clearwater Chain of Lakes is comprised of over two dozen lakes within the Clearwater River Valley. Included within the chain are the following sizeable tributaries of the Clearwater River: Rainy Lake, Lake Alva, Lake Inez, Seeley Lake, Placid Lake, and Salmon Lake. These six lakes are accessible from MT-83 and feature well-developed campgrounds, excellent fishing, and plenty of water activities including jet-skiing, water-skiing, and swimming. Fish species within the Clearwater River system include native west slope cutthroat trout and kokanee. Rainbows, browns, northern pike, perch and other fishable species are also found in the river’s drainages. Pull a large northern pike out of Salmon Lake or Lake Inez, or fish Placid Lake for native trout, kokanee and bass.
